Hearts, Hooves and a Hop

 Love is in the air and the Bento Bloggers & Friends are hopping to celebrate!

There is simply too much love for one hop, so later on today there's going to be another! Check out the Bento Bloggers & Friends page for details.
My offering this year celebrates Hearts & Hooves Day. My little Miss M is all about the Ponies at the moment, so I couldn't let the opportunity pass to lunchify one of her favourite episodes.
 There's a fair few images out there of Big Mac & Cheerilee from this episode. I chose one vector taken from the show, and a fan art (of Fluttershy) to help me with this lunch.
Using this great technique I picked up from Robot Squirrel & the Monkeys I decorated some cheese with FooDoodlers. For Miss M's recent Fluttershy lunch I popped a piece of greaseproof paper on top of the sandwich so the details wouldn't stick to the lid. I used the opportunity to draw what she was supposed to look like. I did it again today, only this time I recycled the piece used to impart the image to start with. I just added a few hearts and a 'Schmoopsey Poo!'

Hand Drawn (can you see why I trace?) Hearts & Hooves title on cheese with crust offcuts below. 
 I had to include an apple for today's fruit. It didn't' really work, but I did try to FooDoodler a green apple cutie mark like Big Mac's on there. It would have worked much better had I cut the skin off, but Miss M doesn't like any of the anti-browning methods I've tried so far.
Snack today is Pepperoni from Walkerston Country Meats and cheese. Cut with Create A Shape and decorated with FooDoodlers to resemble Cheerilee's cutie mark.
All snug in their little container. 
Last but not least I wrapped her popper/juice box in a print out (my printer needs new ink) and wrote a little note for her.

Also included with lunch today - a Sinchies of yoghurt and some My Little Pony biscuits for a treat.
